My job is in higher education. Lots of things are tied to an academic year schedule. There’s a rhythm to it that’s helpful.
Because it gives natural opportunities to assess and reset.
Whatever your role, wherever you are in the hierarchy, it’s really important to regularly look at your priorities, your plans and your progress. To review the internal and external context. And ask yourself…
Do your priorities still make sense? Or has the world moved on?
Are your plans delivering what you thought they would? And is what you thought then still relevant?
So… When is your next opportunity to review and reset?
Take a moment to identify one to four slots in the year that makes sense with your organisation’s flow of activity and block out a little time to make sure you, and your colleagues, are on the right track.
